Orpheus-One - Mid-IR Collinear Optical Parametric Amplifier

Orpheus-ONE is a collinear optical parametric amplifier pumped by femtosecond laser. Compared to the Orpheus series, Orpheus-ONE provides better conversion efficiency in the mid-IR range. This system stands out by its high output stability through the entire tuning range from 1350 to 16000 nm. The compact design, excellent beam parameters and computer-controlled tuning are further advantages of this series.

Description 

Features

  • High conversion efficiency in MIR
  • 1350 – 16000 nm tuning range
  • Single-shot – 2 MHz repetition rate
  • Up to 80 W pump power
  • Up to 2 mJ pump pulse energy

ORPHEUS-ONE is an optical parametric amplifier (OPA) designed for the mid-infrared (MIR) spectral range from 1350 to 16000 nm. Compared to ORPHEUS-HP, it has fewer wavelength extension options but provides higher pump laser conversion efficiency into MIR.

Three models of ORPHEUS-ONE offer the same tuning range, are reliable and easy to use, but vary based on the design automation and pump parameters. The basic ORPHEUS-ONE model is a cost-effective choice but is limited to 8 W pump power. The ORPHEUS-ONE-HP enables up to 80 W pump power, while the ORPHEUS-ONE-HE accepts the same pump power but also pulse energy of up to 2 mJ. Finally, the most recent addition is the ORPHEUS-ONE-UP that is optimized for the PHAROS-UP ultrashort-pulse laser with pump pulse duration down to < 100 fs.

The spectral bandwidth of ORPHEUS-ONE output is defined by the pump laser pulses; thus, for sum-frequency generation (SFG) spectroscopy and other applications requiring broad-bandwidth infrared pulses – refer to ORPHEUS-MIR.
